Hello Hobbyist hello

Howdy, I'm old and semi-sort-of-retired. I've loved GIS for about as long as it's existed, and prices for the software have fallen far enough that I've been able to become a hobbyist. So, I'm looking forward to learning more about GIS on this site and picking up tips for how to do different things with it, especially as that applies to making maps for non-profits and community groups that might benefit from a spatial point of view.

Welcome to this website! I am glad you are here.

Did you work in/around GIS when it started or early on, in it's infancy? If so, I'd love to read any stories that you might have. I bet I'm not alone, either. Simply post them in the General GIS Discussions at your leisure.

With the drop in software prices and free and open source software, GIS is finally getting utilized by everyone (that is willing to learn).

What type of hobby work do you do with GIS? I can think of a ton of things.

Again, thanks for becoming a member of this community!
